Hawaii golfers moving on in respective tourneys
Hawaii's homegrown golf talent had an all-around strong day yesterday, with three of three pro cuts made and a solid performance internationally.
Castle graduate Dean Wilson and Punahou alum Parker McLachlin were tied in 63rd at the Memorial, making the cut by a stroke with two-round totals of 150 at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
Wilson fired a par 72 yesterday to improve his standing after an opening-round 78, earning birdies on three of his first five holes. Wilson has made the cut in five straight tournaments.
McLachlin narrowly held on for a paycheck despite carding a double-bogey on his last hole to shoot a 5-over 77. McLachlin had double-bogey on three holes yesterday.
Michelle Wie continued her strong play at the Ladies German Open in Munich with a second-round 69, moving to 7-under 137 after two rounds and easily making the cut.
After her four-birdie, one-bogey outing, Wie was in a six-way tie for sixth, three strokes behind leader Lora Fairclough of England.
She bogeyed No. 10 but got back on track with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 16 and 17.
Former Big Island resident Kimberly Kim helped the United States Curtis Cup team to a 4-2 lead over Great Britain and Ireland yesterday at St. Andrews, Scotland.
She and Mina Harigae knocked off Carly Booth and Michele Thompson, 3 and 2, in fourballs play.
